  1. Just like in your first reply to the topic where you went from a reasonable start down hill to spaghetti wiring that has nothing to do with the topic at hand, you are taking this one up a notch. I did not ever mention anything about point to point wiring an Intel processor. PCB in a valve amplifiers however are not needed. Calling spaghetti wiring BS is insulting to folk that employ that particular technic to great effect.
  2. I would like to disagree on a couple of points. A PCB does not guarantee good soldering points. If you ever have repaired equipment you would know that. Can you build an amplifier of Supratek fame? (Referring to your comment about the spaghetti layout) Not likely. Also, there is no point in pulling Zaph into this, since we all know how opinionated he his. Have a good day

    Gtg to listen to Lenehan’s new kit speakers.

    Thanks also from me to Dave for having us around to listen to his system and the Lenehan kit speakers. For their size they did not disappoint. As is sometimes the case with a gtg, socialising can get in the way of proper evaluation. To me this is not a bad thing. I certainly enjoyed meeting some new faces and having a good chinwag. I look forward catching up with the guys again somewhere around the sound trap. cheers Stephan

    Accuracy?

    Accuracy=musical? Dont think so. How much of todays singers have there voice recording going through some software to tidy up the voice. Will it sound unmusical? No! Sound engineers will pan individual instruments the place them where they think they should be, that is why you end up with a drum kit 3feet in front of you and that is on good recordings too. i have seen a lot of live music. Would I buy a cd if it sounded like that? No way, because the Accoustics are usually crap. I expect better when I buy a recording. And if I have to fiddle with tone control, I will do so because I can.

    Accuracy?

    At the end of the day the listener adjust his or her system and possibly the room to his or here individual taste. Recordings are engineered to the taste of the engineer. The recordings can never sound like the actual event. They can only be close. Anyone arguing recordings can sound like the actual event lives in lala land.

    Tubes vs solid state

    Who ever has the last word wins. ?

    Tubes vs solid state

    And then there is the amplifier that measures perfect and yet still not everybody likes it. At the end of the day you can measure as much as you like, at the end of the chain is a pair of human hears with all it's flaws and biases that will make the decision of what it likes and what it does not like. And funny enough, no one can argue with that because we all hear thing differently.?

    SS Amp needs repair

    If you are not in a hurry you can drop it off at my place. I am a hobbyist and like a challenge. No guessing from me what the problem might be. To many possibilities. Free of charge. Just pay for parts if needed. Stephan
